Dig Deeper into Wonder by RJ Palacio with these discussion cards. This set of 97 question cards will really get your students thinking, talking and writing about the characters, events, and themes and will help them to connect parts of the book to their own lives.

There are three types of cards included:

  • Cards 1-58 are meant to be used while reading the book. The cards are correlated with specific parts (narrators), which are noted at the bottom of each card.

  • Cards 59-75 focus on characters, themes, and other elements that run through the whole book. These are best used after you have read the entire book.

  • The final 12 cards are Mr. Browne’s Precepts (10 months plus Summer and Auggie’s precepts)

Because these cards are meant for discussion or as writing prompts, they are not simple comprehension questions. Rather, they require students to explain, infer, analyze and evaluate. Many of these cards require students to support their answers with evidence from the text, making them perfect for close reading. Others ask students to form an opinion about a character or event. A few ask students to put themselves in a character’s shoes or to reflect on their own feelings.

If you are also watching the movie, you might also want to consider these Book vs. Movie task cards.

The precept cards are also great for discussion. Or you could follow Mr. Browne’s lead and discuss one each month and then have your students write an essay about what the precept means to them.

On a personal note, like many of you, I love the book Wonder and creating these cards has been one of my favorite TpT projects. I sincerely hope they will facilitate rich and meaningful discussions with your students, and possibly be a small part of creating a classroom where students are routinely "a little kinder than is necessary."
